I am so sleep deprived I don't kow if I have posted this before. My apologies if I have. My DS is 10 mths 2wks. I have tried everything I can think of and read. Even tried CIO. That is definately not an option for me. DH and 4 older brothers think it is a complete horror for the baby to cry. I think it is for him to scream, but I can let him fuss a little. They can't. DH thinks, even if it is 3 am he needs to entertain him if he is fussing. I can't get it through there heads not to play with him that time of night(morning). We are going on day 5 of not sleeping.He really has never been the best sleeper, but better than this. I have a routine, he eats well, he will fall alseep great around 9pm. Sleeps anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes as it up till 1am at the earliest ( that's if I am lucky).I can't sit in a dark room quitly, he has a complete come apart. I feel like I am doing something wrong, but I also know I have tried everything. He doesnt nap well during the day either. I know he isn't getting the sleep he needs to develop. On a really good day he will get about 9 to 10 hrs sleep, that is a 24 hr period. This is truely a first for me. All four of my other boys were great sleepers. I just don't know what to do anymore. He is now crawling and trying to pull up so I know that is part of it too. He is a champ nurser. Will not go to sleep without nursing. I think that might be my earlier post. Nursing him to sleep is fine with me, I just want him to sleep. Poor little thing will literally fall all over the floor, bed, whatever because he is so tired. Please can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong or give me ideas on something I haven't tried. Tried all the expert ideas also, Sears, Ferber, etc.etc. I think as far as sleep is concerned I am at the bottom of my rope and the knot is comign out.
